I was thinking...dangerous I know. But what actually does drive us to reproduce?

Not just sex....what causes us to crave babies???? I mean, men and women want children. I think it is normal and natural, but what causes that? Is it simply hormones? If that is so, why is there women like me who never want to be done having kids, and my hubby, who could have not had any and would have been happy? I know women like that too. I wonder...........

  • I think with a woman it is our need to take care of someone, our nuturing way we have, just like most of us have husbands who need us to take care of them and they just help us reproduce to shut us up..:)

  • I agree that God made us that way.

    Just like we have a natural instinct to survive. Ever tried to kill yourself? Its damn hard.

  • Honestly, I never tried to have kids... Granted I love my daughter and I would do anything for her, but I never felt driven to have a baby. She will probably be my only one and I am fine with that.

  • honestly i never wanted children. i wanted to be a huge author living in europe and sipping coffee in cafes with live-in boyfriends that i could change at't want a husband either. but now two kids later and married, i've found that i am the happiest i've ever been and definitely thinking about adding more to my family in the future...this question got me thinking about why i did a complete 360 and honestly i just don't know. maybe just love and having people to share my life with. being a mom is the lowest paying job in the world (as in zero) but the reward is better than anything i've ever imagined.

  • I think it is just something ingrained in us. Men have the drive to have sex all the time, they hunt. We want babies, we nest. It is mother nature!
